“TARA SHERIDAN HAS A GIFT . . . AND IT ALMOST KILLED HER.
As a criminal profiler, Tara used science and her intuitive skill at Tarot card divination to track down the dangerous and depraved, including the serial killer who left her scarred from head to toe. Since that savage attack, Tara has been a recluse. But now an ancient secret society known as Delphi’s Daughters has asked for her help in locating missing scientist Lowell Magnusson. And Tara, armed with her Tarot deck, her .38, and a stack of misgivings, agrees to try.
Tara immediately senses there is far more at stake than one man’s life. At his government lab in the New Mexico desert, Magnusson had developed groundbreaking technology with terrifying potential. Working alongside the brusque but charismatic agent Harry Li, Tara discovers that Magnusson’s daughter, Cassie, has knowledge that makes her a target too. The more Tara sees into the future, the more there is to fear. She knows she has to protect Cassie. But there may be no way to protect herself—from the enemies circling around her, or from the long-buried powers stirring to life within. . . .”

I just can’t get enough of Urban Fantasy and Dark Oracle is a great addition to the genre. With great touches of Paranormal Romance, Alayna Williams introduces us to a world where the occult meet science and anything is possible.
Tara is an oracle, as was her mother before her. But ever since her since losing her mom to cancer and watching her give into the disease without a fight and suffering some scars of her own, Tara has shut herself out from the world and the Delphi’s Daughters, of which her mother had been a part of.
After years in isolation, an old friend asks Tara to go back to her old life as a criminal profiler to help find a man that the Delphi’s Daughters have predicted to be important for all their futures.
Harry Li is a CIA agent that has been assigned to work with Tara. He is drawn to her immediately but being a man of science, has trouble with dealing with her more supernatural connections.
Tara is a scarred woman, afraid of living after being hurt. Harry is there when she needs him and their connection is instant if a bit hesitant. They make a great couple and even though they have a lot of differences, they are willing to fight for their feelings.
Dark Oracle is a fast-paced. action-packed, character driven story that got me gripping at the edge of my seat from start to finish. Evil plots meet scientific experiments and the supernatural in a great adventure.
Even though I love my Shifters and will always be a Vamp fan girl, It’s great to encounter an Urban Fantasy novel / series that stray from that beaten path and gives something new to read about. Alayna Williams has definitely accomplished that in spades and I recommend Dark Oracle to any Urban Fantasy lover out there.
